If you’re uncertain about taking the plunge, then you’re at the right place. In this blog, I’ll unveil some of the reasons you should study the Russian Language in India.
The knowledge of language unlocks doors and opens a whole new world for you.
To be able to interact at the world level and understand the social and cultural functions, language skills are indispensable.
You might already have your genuine reasons for acquiring a new language.
Perhaps you are exploring new language career alternatives, or you like the sound of a particular accent or taking advantage of an exciting language job.
Maybe you plan to do business abroad or visit the country concerned as a tourist or student. The benefits are endless!
It’s not usually the first choice people think of when they envy learning a different language.
Most people tend to pick popular European languages like French, German, or Spanish, or something ambitious, i.e., Turkish, Arabic, or Persian, or maybe something more challenging East Asian languages like Chinese, Korean, or Japanese?
So, Why the less popular language like Russian?
To some of us, the name Russia invokes fear and mystery.
As a result, some think Russia isn’t worth contemplating, while a few who even consider Russian sees it as a difficult language to learn.
But for people like us who see beyond the stereotypical garbage and the nonsense propaganda written against Russian, there are dozens of reasons you and I should learn the Russian Language in India.
Scope after learning Russian language:
- Career as a Russian Translation and Interpreter
Knowledge of Russian can help you get the chance to become a translator, interpreter, editor, proofreader, and content writer.
While there are many translation software like Google, Bing, etc., machine translation cannot replace human translation. There are words with dual meanings in different languages, and what works in one tongue does not necessarily work in another. Human translators and interpreters are much more reliable and effective, and the ‘personal’ aspect will always beat technology. That’s why a career as a Russian translator or interpreter is in high demand. And a job that pays well everywhere.
- Jobs for Russian Teacher, Trainer, and Lecturer
Do you have a flair for teaching?
If you know Russian, you can select from different career pathways, and one such great option is language teaching jobs. A decade back, there was hardly any vacancy for teaching Russian, but today you can find new openings across the world. Several CBSE, ICSE & international schools, and colleges and universities have introduced Russian in their curriculum. These days, many companies and private institutes are also searching for Russian trainers for their corporate and professional courses. Besides, private tutoring and online classes are a few other alternatives.
- Career prospects in Export and Import Businesses
Trade is the engine of the global economy. In the increasingly interconnected world, there is no far-off place.
Many Russian-speaking regions, especially in the European countries, specifically seek bilateral cooperation with India. Russian can surely increase your chances of finding a new job in an export company, getting a promotion or a transfer overseas, or getting selected for international travel or foreign assignment with better pay.
- Importance of Russian in Tourism and Hospitality
The hotel, leisure, entertainment, hospitality, travel, and tourism sector are among the largest and fastest-growing segments of the domestic and global economies. As the world is becoming a single global village, the understanding of Russian is a great value add to your resume in the ever-growing travel and tourism industry.
- Employment in BPO, KPO, IT, Call Centers & MNC
One of the primary attractions that pull many Indians to learn Russian is the outstanding job openings it provides in the ever-growing outsourcing & offshoring businesses. There are plenty of processes in a BPO, KPO, and ITES which involve different roles and pay-scale.
After English, Russian is the most popular foreign language for jobs in the BPO industry.
So, you have plenty of career options if you start learning Russian.
